Paul Pelosi faces DUI charges after crash in California

If convicted, Paul Pelosi faces up to five years probation, possible jail time and having a blood alcohol meter installed in his car.

WASHINGTON — Paul Pelosi, the husband of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, has been charged with two counts related to drunk driving after he was arrested in California last month.

According to documents filed with California Superior Court, Paul Pelosi, 82, is facing one case of DUI causing injury and one case of driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08% causing injury.

Documents filed by prosecutors say police responding to an accident on a Napa County road found Pelosi intoxicated after driving his Porsche into another man’s vehicle. The man, identified only as John Doe, refused medical treatment at the scene, as did Pelosi.

Records show that both cars sustained extensive damage in the accident.

He was arrested around 11:45 p.m. on the night of May 28 and sent to the Napa County Jail in Northern California with two counts of drunk driving. His bail was set at $5,000. Pelosi was released on bail the next day.

Nancy Pelosi was in Rhode Island over the weekend to give a commencement address at Brown University. She did not mention the arrest in her remarks on Sunday.

Paul Pelosi married Nancy in 1963 and has made a conscious effort to distance himself from his wife’s high-profile political career. He is the founder of Financial Leasing Services, an investment firm based in San Francisco.

Paul and Nancy Pelosi share a home in town, and she represents the borough that encompasses San Francisco.

If convicted, Paul Pelosi faces up to five years probation, possible jail time and having a blood alcohol meter installed in his car.

He is scheduled to be indicted in Napa County Superior Court on August 3.
